LISTE Performance Project

This year’s Performance Project at LISTE will bring together performance works focusing on language and voices, sound and poetry, choreography and dance. Reflecting its own development as an art form, the genre of performance is still an experimental field and is deeply dependent on its performers. Apart from the content of individual works, this year’s Performance Project is also concerned with the various stages of Performance: Solo performances will be shown alongside works that are structured around several protagonists, performances in the public space and in privates spaces, stage versions, as well as works that are more intimately focused on the level of the observer. New works will be presented as well as existing works that will be shown for the first time in Switzerland.
